This concertina has been soldType : Anglo
Make : Lachenal
Model : 22 key anglo
Price : £400
A rare Lachenal 22 key anglo. It has bone buttons, rosewood stained mahogany ends, , steel reeds and 5 fold bellows.
It has been restored with new pads, valves, straps and tuned to concert pitch.
The extra buttons are very important as they take it from an instrument only capable of playing in two keys to an instrument which can play in many more.
The extra notes are D#/C# on the right and Bb/G# on the left.
It has had the bellows rebound and re-papered and I see it has had an internal crack repaired on the right hand action board-which is not leaking.
Comes in a cheaper gig bag.
A great instrument for a beginner at about the price of a plastic and paper Chinese copy
